Homosexuality in The Hip Hop World

Today, former DJ for popular Hot 97 radio station revealed his dark secret that he has kept away from the industry for years. Although many artists, colleagues and fans might find this as a shock and might even call it disturbing, I find it to be a relief that Dj Mister Cee revealed himself before the world. It shows that the industry itself is progressing when it comes to tough topics such as sexuality.

Some remember when R&B singer Frank Ocean, came out in 2012.

It was the positive response that he got from around the world that explores how much progress this specific industry has made. For a male dominated genre, thats known to be so tough and hard, to become so open to change really shows how much it has grown. I hope more artists, DJ’s and producers become more comfortable with themselves to become who they truly are.
